Just curious to ask anyone out there who has the aftermarket headlights available for the EF/ELs,

do they still go yellow?

or are they made from a different material?

I think it might depend on who you get them off. My mate had a set in his EF futura, and while they didnt go yellow - didnt have the car for all that long though - they sounded different when you tapped them.... and they just looked a bit 'cheap'.

On the other hand, my gfs dads EL Fairmont has a new set, and they seem to be much better than the originals, both in materials and construction quality.....

If you're only worried about them going yellow, you can just polish that crap off. Hit my headlights with a bit of 3M cut and polish and they clear as a bell now.
